Literary Javascript

Twitter developeshakespearer and book nerd Angus Croll wondered what famous authors would do with javascript. His gives examples from his imagination for four great writers: Ernest Hemingway, Andre Breton, Roberto Bolano, and William Shakespeare. Here’s how the Bard might write code:

function theSeriesOfFIBONACCI(theSize) {

  //a CALCKULATION in two acts.
  //employ’ng the humourous logick of JAVA-SCRIPTE

  //Dramatis Personae
  var theResult; //an ARRAY to contain THE NUMBERS
  var theCounter; //a NUMBER, serv’nt to the FOR LOOP

  //ACT I: in which a ZERO is added for INITIATION

  //[ENTER: theResult]

  //Upon the noble list bestow a zero
  var theResult = [0];

That’s just Act One. See Act Two and the other authors at Fat XXX. Link -via Metafilter
